SAY Awards 2014 – Longlist

The longlist for the annual Scottish Album of the Year Awards was released recently. Returning for a third year, the list shows the amount of high quality music released in Scotland between January and December 2013. The list is nothing short of compelling, crossing genres from jazz to hip hop; folk to classical and rock to electronic. Artists making this year’s longlist include Scottish legends and luminaries, some releasing their first album and some who have released a dozen; the uniformly high calibre of artist providing a great insight to Scotland’s extraordinary musical landscape. Music fans will get their chance to vote for their favourite album following a four-week promotion of the week day. The promotion concludes with a 72 hour public vote starting on Monday 26th with the most public votes will secure an automatic place on The SAY Award Shortlist of ten; with the other nine titles being chosen by an independent panel of judges.
